About 1980, Richard H Hinson started building boats for his
friends, but the story begins long before that. All of his
life, Richard has had a love for the outdoors and all kinds
of outdoor sports. Along with this personal interest in the
outdoors, Richard had a strong desire to find the very best
hunting and fishing spots that no one had been before.
This desire lead Richard to try all kinds of ways to find
the places that still had the biggest and best game
available. He tried every different kind of boat, canoe and
kayak one could imagine. None seemed to have all the
features and comforts that suited him, so Richard started to
experiment and bring into reality his version of the ideal
"hot spot" boat.
Soon, Richard had both a one and a two man boat that he
and his close friends could use to comfortably reach
those places that others couldn't go and that was the
hiding place of trophy game. Then the requests came...
Richard's friends started to ask him to build them boats
like the ones he had.
As more and more people saw Richard's boats, he began
to get more requests to build them. It became quite
apparent to him that there was a demand for what he had
to offer and that he would have to move out of the small
garage where he began building his boats. Today, Richard
has a new facility that allows him to build quality
boats with modern techniques that still offer the
personal touch that makes his boats so popular with his
If you are the kind of sportsman that doesn't want to
be where all the other hunters and fisherman are, and
you want to be sure to arrive safely and in comfort,
there's only one choice for you........an original,
